Grossly Contaminated Fuel: What Shell said before ABC News intervened

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from an article by by STEPHANIE ZIMMERMANN published 21 March 2014 by ABC News under the headline: Michigan Gas Station Pumps Fuel ‘Grossly Contaminated’ With Water, Kills Car

Dear ABC News Fixer: I filled my gas tank with fuel that was contaminated with water, causing more than $1,300 in damage to my car – and now the Shell station won’t reimburse me.

I presented this information to Shell and they basically told me to take it to court. I think it’s shameful that Shell, which makes billions of dollars a year, refuses to take responsibility for damage to my vehicle that was clearly caused by faulty fuel from one of their stations.

(Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell traders are allowed to keep dealing with commodities trading house Gunvor after the United States imposed sanctions on its co-founder, Shell said in an internal email seen on Friday by Reuters. The email said Shell had been able to review the status of Gunvor following the imposition on Thursday of U.S. sanctions against Gunvor co-founder Gennady Timchenko.

Shell exit from 600,000-acre stake in southern Kansas

Screen Shot 2013-12-22 at 19.09.52Extracts from an article by Dan Voorhis published on 21 March 2014 by The Wichita Eagle under the headline: SandRidge to let its oil leases expire on much of its acreage in Kansas

Land lease prices jumped in 2010 and 2011 from the $15 to $75 per acre range to $250 to $1,500 per acre, depending on location, when SandRidge, Shell Oil and other large out-of-state oil exploration companies rushed to accumulate large leaseholds. But the geology of the Mississippian layer proved more complex and less consistently profitable than expected. The mixed results led most of them to leave. SandRidge investors deposed company founder Tom Ward in 2013 because of low profits and low stock prices. Ward has since returned to Kansas with a new company, Tapstone Energy, which purchased Shell’s approximately 600,000-acre stake in southern Kansas. read more

Nothing but ill-fortune for Shell off the shores of Alaska

Screen Shot 2013-01-11 at 20.09.51Extracts from an article by Reuben Brewer published on 21 March 2014 by The Motley Fool under the headline: BP Wins One and Loses One in the Gulf

Royal Dutch Shell has found nothing but ill-fortune off the shores of Alaska. Shell’s most public problem was the 2013 grounding of the Kulluk drill ship. However, that was merely the capstone event on a difficult journey that reportedly cost the company $5 billion over seven years. After Kulluk, the company halted its drilling plans and recently announced that it wouldn’t be drilling in 2014, either. Now there’s even questions circulating about whether or not the U.S. government overstepped its bounds by opening up the region to drilling. This was a big bet for Shell that hasn’t turned out very well. While Shell has the financial wherewithal to take the hit, it’s one of many the company is dealing with. read more

Former Shell exec has no problem with Shell bribing Irish police?

Screen Shot 2014-03-22 at 00.07.25

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 16.30.10From his recently posted comments, it seems that LondonLad has no problem with Shell drowning the Irish police force (the Garda) in free Christmas booze, despite allegations that they are “Shell’s Cops” and have allegedly acted accordingly when dealing with protestors. Perhaps he thinks that if corruption is okay for Shell in Nigeria, then its equally good for Shell in Ireland.

By John Donovan

For several years a retired former senior Royal Dutch Shell executive with service in the USA and Nigeria has been posting comments on our “Shell Blog” originally using the alias Musaint and more recently, LondonLad.

My assumption that they are one and the same is an educated guess.

Mainly, but not always, he is a supporter of Shell.

I corresponded directly with this retired senior Shell executive when he was in Musaint mode. All very convivial. Less so when debating issues on this website. read more
